Let me put a few things out there for everyone to think about.
1. 2022 has been a continued disaster to try and build anything automotive due to on-going parts and labor shortages. As a result everyone is behind on orders and it has continued to screw up their year-on-year planning for volume. Look how the Durango model year cycle changed in 2021 and went clear to the end of the year. 2022 looks to be in the same boat.
2. 2023 will be more of the same. With final runs for the Charger and Challenger, Dodge will focus a lot of their attention and parts resources on those two products.
3. TRX continues to be a cash cow, much beyond Stellantis' wildest dreams. If they build them, people seem to buy them.
4. No way all of the allocations for 2023 Durango Hellcats have been issued. Based upon how the 2021 DDHC orders/production went I think Dodge was getting a flavor for the DDHC appetite again in 2023 by seeing how fast the initial allocations would disappear even with the ordering constraints (Plus or Premium, same 4 colors as 2022, Black Package, Stripes and 3-season tires as only options). I know of only one person publicly admitting they are waiting for the new colors to be available to order one. I understand the fear Dodge has put into this process of not being able to order one (believe me, most of us lived it in 2021) and folks are ordering one now just to try and get one (even if it isn't exactly what they want).
5. I know folks want to have the last possible Hellcat powered SUV off the line as it might hold value and the like. As it stands right now there is nothing stopping Dodge from continuing the current Durango platform into 2024 as they develop the new design (currently due in 2025). Would the DDHC be available as a 2024 model? Who knows. But you know Tim Kuniskis is going to build as many of these bad boys as he can. He learned his lesson in 2021.
6. Be patient. I know that is a hard thing to hear. We will know more as the 2022 build out continues and Dodge readies for 2023. Heck, Dodge will know more too.
7. Outside of a few new colors and a new fuel system (to meet the evap emissions for 2023), the 2023 DDHC will be identical to the 2021. There are a bunch of 2021 DDHCs hitting the used vehicle market on a weekly basis, most of them at a fair price and some with surprisingly low miles. Used car prices continue to fall. Go find one you like and buy it! Enjoy it now without having to worry about a dealer lying to you about allocations and your order never seeing production as a result. Heck, you will probably avoid the ridiculous markups by buying a used 2021 as well.
